will it impact the presidential race. bill clinton stepping in a as an 11th-hour pinch-hitter. in the long run though, will this help or will it perhaps hurt? ♪ [ male announcer ] why do more emergency workers everywhere trust duracell...?? duralock power preserve. locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. now...guaranteed. duracell with duralock. trusted everywhere. >>> former president clinton making his presence felt in the race for the white house. he followed up with that all-star speech with ads supporting the president in the swing states. next week he will be joining president obama on the campaign trail. joining me to talk about it, a.b. stoddard, associate editor at "the hill" and jeff greenfield, host of "need to know" on pbs. nice to have you back since i cut you off at the top of the show. it's the president trying to get re-elected alongside a wildly popular former president. it seems like a slam dunk but does president obama run the risk of actually being overshadowed? >> yeah. in fact, when you bring this up, i can't think of any example where an incumbent president has a
wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis while the rally went on and the normal things you hear at these rallies, the political campaign was going on. and the storm was mentioned by bill clinton but really not heavily. only in passing. and i think people are obviously talking about it to a certain extent. it's not in the front of their minds. what it does politically, conventional campaigning has ceased. it takes the two candidates off the media. i don't think people will be interested in them anyway. the normal style of campaigning has stopped. i don't mean politics has stopped. i think this is an important political moment. but the normal stuff of campaigning is over for a few days at least. >> bridgette kendall in cleveland, ohio. ohio only on the edge of hurricane sandy but right at the center of america's political storm. what do they think the impact on m
is he is still using to top surrogates, vice-president biden and former president bill clinton to campaign full speed ahead. >> hello, youngstown. >> after they stick together in ohio monday, biden has to solo rallies tomorrow in battleground florida. today he tried to drum up hispanic turnout by telling the univision talk-show host he and the president have been breaking karnak trying to get a real immigration law even though the president failed to follow through on a promise to pass immigration reform by the end of his first year in office. clinton was in minnesota, as did democrats were supposed to have locked up long ago, but it has suddenly become a battleground. he tried to use a superstar to republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming and economically beneficial ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. and in my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> the obama campus all so suddenly spending $650,000 in pennsylvania, a democratic stronghold wi
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
the storm's progress while former president, bill clinton, does the event solo. early voting, by the way, opened on saturday in florida and with some waiting hours to cast ballots, but are the lines long enough for the democrats to overcome the republicans' absentee voter advantage in the state? think snowbirds. >> early voting started this weekend. i understand you guys blew it out when it came to early voting. whoever is able to get their voters out, you know, they're the ones who are going to win florida. we win florida, we win this election. >> i need you to vote early. i need you to get out and vote. we need to make sure that we win this one. it counts. >> florida congresswoman debbie wassermann schultz chairs the democratic national committee. she is sitting somewhere that is unfamiliar to me because you have sunlight behind you and blue skies. that is not something we have here on the east coast. >> right. >> let me just start with the president's decision. basically, does he regret even flying down to orlando last night? is that the takeaway we should have from him deciding this
eight days there. he's going to be there with bill clinton on monday and i expect him to be back there relatively soon after that. i think he's going to basically be bunking there all week. >> yeah, good point. what about you, steve? the ohio poll showing the president is winning over about six in ten early voters. but he's losing the election day voters, 61% to 44% for mitt romney. so the romney campaign says the president's peaking too soon. do you have a read on the ground there, what's going on? >> well, i mean, the ground game is fascinating there. the president has about three times as many field offices in ohio as mitt romney does. so they're very confident they have enough people to knock on doors, make phone calls and get out the vote on election day. however, late-breaking votes tend not to vote for the incumbent. you know, we know that those voters know who the incumbent is. they haven't gone to him, they haven't voted early for him, so it could end up being a wash on election day and could be a late night. >> you got that right. how about the obama campaign calculatio
for the public right now is please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. >> that left bill clinton flying solo in florida. >> i was supposed to be the warmup man for president obama today. but that storm on the east coast had other ideas. >> governor romney canceled his schedule tonight but today he was still campaigning out of the storm's path in ohio. >> on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. and we are in a special edition today, hurricane sandy growing stronger, reaching what could be historic strength as it heads directly for the northeast. we've got all of our reporters standing by throughout the danger zones with full reports but first, our meteorologist bill karins, live in lower manhattan, bracing for the storm surge tonight. bill, you're down there near battery city and obviously you're looking at tide coming in i guess around 8:30 tonight, is the really first test of just how bad this is going to be? >> yeah. this is
, bill clinton was campaigning in minnesota yesterday. do you think that the obama campaign is worried about these states? >> i would say that i would get worried or i think maybe increase the level of concern about these potential battle grounds if you saw the principals going there. the most precious resource that a campaign is the candidate's time because that's finite with only six or so days left. if you send surrogates like bill clinton to minimnesota, you don really lose anything by doing that. it's kind of a plus plus. so i think it's a smart strategy. if i see more polls coming out of minnesota or michigan or pennsylvania showing this a close race and showing the president's numbers down to 48 or 47, then i'll get concerned. up until that happens, i'm not going to be that concerned about those states. >> so if romney is concerned then we would see romney making a stop in those states? >> he's partially right but he's also spending money there. they're not going to spend money after bad. if the poll numbers are as close as you put up on the screen, chris, then if you have the r
tomorrow night to florida ahead of the campaign event in florida with former president bill clinton. i can tell you the vice president biden was supposed to have an event in virginia beach today. that has been canceled. so sandy already having an impact on the campaign's plans. of course, president obama has been monitoring hurricane sandy, had a conference call with fema director fred fugate on friday. he will continue to monitor sandy in the coming days. and alex, those are the changes that we know about so far. i would not be surprised if we have a number of changes on the horizon as both president obama and mitt romney monitor this storm and its effects. alex? >> well, the president, he was doing some interviews yesterday. he did a lot of them. and it's going from local market to local market that way. what's he saying? >> reporter: well, alex, a number of things that we've sort of gleaned from these interviews that he did. he is reaching out to young voters, to women voters, to independents. one of his key messages, though, is for folks to get out and vote early. this is what he said
in florida by running on bill clinton's record and blaming george w. bush. independents are saying, what about your record, mr. president. >> we'll talk a lot more about the undecided states of america not hour. be sure to stay with us for that. we'll talk about new hampshire, the four electoral votes there could really be the difference in this historically close race. >>> this is a story that has a lot of people. we have the latest on malala, the 15-year-old girl shot by the taliban. s everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. . >>> residents of char lsten and other cities are awaiting sandy's approach. the exact time and location of landfall, who knows. the storm is currently in the atlantic ocean. meteorologist alexandria steele will be along with the latest on is the storm's path. >>> sandy is expected to have a major impact on land and in the air. now, right now, amtra
. that rally did go on but not with him. with former president bill clinton as the starring attraction instead. but president obama had to cancel this and the reason is on the bottom of your screen. it's hurricane sandy. cnn's dan lothian is at the white house. we just heard the president making a plan for this big public announcement at 12:45. anything other than updating where we stand and what people need to do, depending on where they live? >> reporter: we're still trying to get more details on that. but we expect it will simply be an update at 12:45 on what the president has lrnd coearned comt of this meeting going on right now. the president getting briefed from some of the senior members of his team including janet napolitano and craig fugate and john brennan. the follows some of the briefings the president has been getting over the weekend. he also went over to fema headquarters where he had a chance to get a firsthand glimpse of what the federal government was doing to stay on top of this hurricane. again, the president promising that the federal government will help states in any way
and mika are hosts of "morning joe." >> one thing we do know, bill clinton is going to be very nervous about having to fill all that space by himself today without barack obama. he's going to do great in orlando, obviously. but mitt romney had momentum. you look at ohio, ohio poll that came out, had him dead locked. minnesota poll, three. gets the endorsement from "des moines register." in that state that's a big deal. this is mitt romney's best weekend and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes the race but you certainly know that it's a new dynamic into the race and it changes everything with a week to go. >> the question is how. a lot of people have different theories which candidate it benefits. ate moment for the president to be commander-in-chief, to be presidential, but there are pitfalls with that. >> it sure is. there are pitfalls because something could go wrong and people could maybe perhaps, the president isn't doing enough. but if this storm is as big as it portends to be, expect command centers up and down the coast and the not be very visible at all
think 1992 when president bush the first was running for re-election against bill clinton. did his handling of that storm in any way affect the elections' outcome. of course, for the record, bush lost. >> well, you know, the difference is that was in august of '92. and it did hurt him because the democrats had a couple of months to start saying he did not do enough. people in florida were quite livid about bush in '92. of course, he loses to al gore. but there are other factors. ross perot running and getting 19% on the fact that he had -- read my lips, no new taxes. the economic woes of that year. but nevertheless, his inaction of andrew was noticeable and in 2005, you know, george w. bush asked president his flyover of katrina got people very, very angry. in many ways, it hurt the republican party in 2008 along with the war in iraq and the economic crisis of '08, it was sort of the third horseman of the woes that w brought on the country that he didn't seem to care enough during the time of the katrina disaster.
multiple presidential personalities. >> i'm hoping to be another bush or bill clinton. >> reporter: but the race is tight, and these two know campaigning at one of the busiest places on earth is a good thing. >> here comes the storm. are you the naked cowboy? >> it's president barack hussein obama. >> if i'm elected president, the naked cowboy will get pants. >> reporter: if one naked cowboy isn't enough -- >> obama! yo mama! >> reporter: there's always room for two. it's times square, new york, a blue state, where the president is more popular than the governor. >> i can't even get anybody to take a picture with me. >> this is my town. jay-z wrote a song about that. who's gonna write a song tonight? this guy. >> reporter: kidding aside. the presidential impersonation business can be lucrative. >> what do you charge? >> for a show with four characters, up to $34,000. hey, the president's going to get a million for his speech. >> it's overwhelming, especially when you don't have proper security, you know? especially when you're not really the president, you know? i know i look like
for bill clinton. doug, where does the race stand? >>doug: first, the national popular vote, you look at average, 1.5 to 2 points for governor romney. there are eight daily national polls. the governor romney has been leading in five or six. the swing states, we will get do that in a second, they are deadlocked and the momentum we talked about last week, it continues to be ever-so-slightly in my judgment, for governor romney. >>gregg: and now the rasmussen poll, the national poll, governor romney is 50 and president obama at 47 and most of the national polls are showing governor romney with a lead. now, having said that, pat, talk about the president's declining job approval. >>pat: we have talked on the program, i said the most important number is the job approval. he is holding at 50. it took a real dip since last tuesday in the polling from 53 percent to 47 and the negative is up and also in rasmussen he dropped from 50 to 47. >>gregg: what does that mean? >>pat: in advance of a vote movement the approval rating is going down. he has to be at 50 to win in my opinion and, i think, d
. -- there are lies, there are coverups. unlike bill clinton and monica lewenski, there are four dead americans as a result. we absolutely deserve an answer. it's not about the election. i wish this weren't happening so close to an election. because it is easy to say this is just election year politics. this is not. this is the -- really the integrity of the united states government on the line. >> governor, why do we have to wait until after the election to have these hearings? >> well, because i think there is a good reason the white house doesn't want all the time line, all of the information as to who knew what and when did they know it. this goes back to the classic question that was asked during the watergate hearings that i remember so vividly. what did the president know and when did he know it? those are the simple questions that we need answers to. >> well, you choose your words carefully, governor, i have watched you for many years and always been a great fan of your stewardship as a public servant. what you said about the president's stewardship in office in terms of history, that's

virginia. of course there was supposed to be the rally with bill clinton and prince william county. canceling an event in colorado springs. colorado due to the hurricane as well. meanwhile in battleground ohio, the race now officially a dead heat. this is the latest poll from the cincinnati inquirer and ohio news organization. it shows the president and governor romney tied. at 49-49. you can bet the campaigns are closely watching sandy's path along the east coast. just nine days before the election. sandy may be having some lasting effects in several states. especially in the crucial battleground state of virginia joining me now, christian kabowski. the republican national committee's national press secretary. kristen, good afternoon to you. the romney campaign canceling events in the commonwealth today. how worried are you at this point about the storm, and its aftermath affecting the campaign's last days before the election. >> well obviously our primary concern right now has to be the hurricane and all those in its potential path. right now that's what the campaign and the rnc,
mean, those are prolific bullet points. if you go president by president, bill clinton, the most effective president of our adult life, give me three bullet points of his office. >> peace and prosperity. >> no, no, but specific bullet points. >> well, booming economy and welfare reform and deficit reduction. >> okay. once again, not as even targeted in their own way where you can literally say i saved the auto industry. i killed the villain other than adolf hitler, probably the most renowned villain in history over the last 50 or 100 years. and once again, probably the most important, whether you like it or not, piece of legislation over the last 50 years, these are stunning points. >> you need to have lunch with george will. >> he's way too smart. by the way, i would just -- what does jape mean, by the way? >> and billious. >> callous. >> "the new york times." it's all up to ohio. it's been all up to ohio for months now. on wednesday a new cbs poll showed obama leading romney by five points in the buckeye state. in response, romney officials began to suggest maybe it was really
